Hinder, Pauly D pull out of Boise Music Festival


Two of the main acts scheduled to perform at the all-day Boise Music Festival on Saturday will not appear as planned.

Oklahoma rock band Hinder, known for radio-friendly hits “Get Stoned” and “Lips of an Angel,” was involved in a tour bus accident Sunday. “Members of the band and crew suffered injuries and spent the night in (the) ER,” according to  the band’s website. “Under doctor’s orders, the band will be taking some time off to heal, and plans to resume their tour on August 10th in at the Miami County Fair in Troy, Ohio.”

DJ Pauly D — of “Jersey Shore” fame — is canceling because of travel challenges. “Pauly D’s airline  routing from Central American changed,” said Kevin Godwin, senior vice-president at Peak Broadcasting, “and he can’t make it to Boise in time for the show.”

“It’s very unfortunate, both really wanted to play (the Boise Music Festival),” Godwin said in an email. “I believe the drummer from Hinder is calling some of our radio stations tomorrow to talk about the accident.”

“In lieu of the changes, most of our headliner artists — Carly Rae Jepsen, Jason Derulo, Candlebox, Vanilla Ice and Dakota Bradley — will now be extending their sets on stage.”

This is the fourth year for the Boise Music Festival, which moved in 2012 from its original location, Ann Morrison Park, to its new home, Expo Idaho. The official statement from Peak Broadcasting regarding the lineup changes is here.
